Holy Well sa Testa


Photographs by David Donnini

The sacred well of Sa Testa was discovered in the thirties along the coastal road from Olbia to Golfo Aranci, by shepherds in search of water. Sa Testa includes a circular courtyard, a trapezoidal entrance, a staircase and a tholos, which encloses the well. The exact age of the monument can not be accurately detectable due to its continued use until the Roman era. The dating of the oldest forms - still uncertain - seems to confirm its contemporary with other examples of sacred wells found in the island [late bronze age, 1200-900 BC].
